Common questions for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair loss?

Platelets circulate in the plasma component of your blood and contain valuable growth-factors. These growth factors can be concentrated and used to grow hair.

  • How is PRP obtained?
    • PRP is obtained via a blood draw. (The amount of blood needed is 25x less than a blood donation)
    • After blood is collected it is centrifuged to extract platelet rich plasma (PRP). 
  • How is PRP delivered?
    • The solution is micro-injected into the hair follicles.
    • Pain is reduced through application of pre-injection local anesthesia.
  • How long does a session take?
    • Each session is 45 minutes
  • When can I see the results and does PRP need to be repeated?
    • Hair grows slowly (1.25 cm a month). To see the maximal results, we recommend 3 sessions of PRP spaced every 4-8 weeks. The results of PRP are continually evaluated, though the results are best judged after 6 months.  If you are a “PRP responder” (60-70%) then you will receive PRP maintenance 2-3 times per year.
  • Is PRP safe?
    • PRP is exceedingly safe because you are using your own blood products and avoiding foreign substances.
  • What is the downtime?
    • Downtime is minimal (<1 day). Most can return to work after a PRP session.
